Desktop icons gone. Windows issues

  Gibbsracer 15:18 24 Mar 2018

All of my icons are gone from desktop. From the start menu I can open programs, but they only open minimized in the taskbar. I’ve tried to maximize but nothing happens. Rebooting doesn’t work. Tried it multiple times. I’ve clicked ”show desktop icons” several times and nothing.

If you right click the start button bottom left can you open Windows PowerShell (admin) or it might be CMD (admin), then copy and paste DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth and press enter. It might seem to be doing nothing for a while so be a bit patient. Once it has run type exit then reboot. This is for Windows 10.
